Post-op Care

Cosmetic surgery is one of the most common procedures performed in the United States today, but many people forget that the post care after any surgery is very important to best results.

During plastic surgery the body is exposed to physical abuse in the joints, muscles and tissues, so postsurgical or postoperative therapy massage speed recovery and reduce or eliminate pain or inflammation product that occur after surgery.

Lymphatic drainage is the natural function of the lymphatic system, being an essential part of immunity. After a liposuction the patients can accumulate liquids, so is recommend a massage for lymphatic drainage.

This treatment increases the lymph flow and activation of the lymph nodes and provides more moisture to the skin of the patient, the bruising disappears in three or four days, the pain disappears quickly and tissues are put back in a little time, a inflammation is highly reduced, avoid subcutaneous fibrosis liposuction, and the patient’s recovery occurs much faster, giving a normal and beautiful appearance.

Postoperative lymphatic drainage massages can start after the first week of surgery performed, generally 48 hours or as soon as your surgeon gives you clearance. For best results, 10 sessions of one hour accompanied ultrasound deep heat waves, whose graduates by type of therapy to be performed in each session depending of the patient’s condition, which is always going to be pretty good, if you meet all the pre-surgical and post-surgical follow their doctor recommendations. These sessions can also vary from 30 to 45 min depending on the patient’s condition. The recovery and shaping the body of the patient after Vanity lymphatic drainage are extremely surprising.

PS Lymphatic Drainage Massage after Liposuction

FAQ About Lympatic Drainage massage

Q: Why do I need Lymph Drainage Therapy after my liposuction, Smart-lipo or other cosmetic surgery procedure?

A: You many notice a hardness or lumpiness to the areas treated with liposuction or Smart-lipo, especially in the abdominal area and even more so if combined with other body contouring procedures (such as fat injections for what is popularly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift) This is normal right after your procedure. This post-surgical lymphedema is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula (instrument that sucks out the fat) moving under the skin. Channels are formed by the cannula that can fill up with fluid and the tissue also becomes swollen. Manual Lymph Massage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels. Reducing the swelling can reduce discomfort. Without Lymph Massage (MLD) the inflammation can evolve into fibrosis (a permanent hardening of the tissue) or a seroma (pocket of serum) can form. Many doctors prescribe Lymph Drainage Therapy after liposuction to make sure their patients get the best possible results from their procedure.

Q: Is Lymph Drainage Therapy a deep massage?

A: No, although it may seem that deep massage would assist in decreasing the hardness following lipo, it would actually increase the circulation to the treated areas making it harder to evacuate the lymph fluid. Even though MLD is extremely light work, it is the most efficient way to reduce swelling and bruising. It is based on scientific Knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the Lymphatic System. It is a myth that deep massage and heat are beneficial in healing after liposuction. So, even though it may seem to you that a deep massage or other forms of therapeutic or Swedish massage would be helpful, it is not.

Q: Does MLD help get rid of bruising?

A: Yes. That is one of the best applications of MLD. Bruises are an accumulation of cellular debris and old red blood cells in the tissue. Lymph Drainage Therapy greatly reduces healing time for bruises by cleansing the spaces where these substances are trapped.

Q: Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage Painful?

A: Performed properly it is not painful. Lymphatic drainage massage is NOT traditional massage, it is a specialized bodywork modality that uses a gentle, rotating, pumping motion that moves the lymph fluid without increasing the blood circulation. Increasing the blood circulation with deep massage and heat can actually inhibit the movement of lymph fluid by changing the permeability of the lymph and blood vessels. Do NOT receive a general therapeutic, deep tissue or Swedish Massage in lieu of MLD.

Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: It is ideal to receive at least one or two MLD treatments prior to a procedure, in order to prepare the tissue for the trauma of surgery. There are many different things that can influence healing. Some patients get 1-6 treatments post-operatively and that is enough, especially if the only area of liposuction was the legs, knees, or flanks. People getting liposuction to the abdomen often find they require up to 12 sessions. Occasionally a client will need more than 12, especially if they had “Smart-lipo”. Also, patients who get multiple procedures at the same time (lipo and a tummy tuck, or lipo and a buttock enhancement…Brazilian Butt Lift) may need more sessions than someone who only gets one procedure. Sessions may be paid for individually, or in discounted packages.

Q: What is an MLD treatment like?

A: The atmosphere is the same as a massage treatment room with dim lighting and soft music. Although you are in a massage setting, it is important to understand that MLD is a specific form of bodywork designed to efficiently move lymph fluid in your body. MLD is completely different from a deep tissue, Swedish or relaxation massage that you may be expecting or have had in the past. Stimulation of the Lymphatic System activates the para-sympathetic nervous system producing an automatic physiological relaxation response. Many clients fall asleep. Gentle, rotating, pumping motions with the therapist’s hands and fingertips begin at the collarbone area, then focus on areas where there is a concentration of lymph nodes…the underarms, abdomen, groin and back of the knees. Usually the entire session in performed with you lying in the face-up position because all of the areas of lymph nodes that need to be decongested are located on the front of the body. Starting on the back (even for fat injections to the buttocks) would not be indicated because it is necessary to open up the major lymphatic areas on the front of your body before the backside of the body can drain. It is very important to decongest the areas of drainage in the groin, abdomen, underarms and collarbone areas before sending extra lymph fluid to them. Directing lymph fluid to nodal areas without opening the lymph nodes up first increases the discomfort and overwhelms the nodes, leading to increased recovery time.

Q: How often is MLD applied?

A: The first week it is suggested that sessions be daily or every other day, if possible. The second week, every other day, reducing in frequency after that. It is not possible to get too much MLD and the sessions can be scheduled at your convenience.

Q: How soon after my procedure can MLD begin?

A: It is possible to begin within 24 hours. Most people wait until they can comfortably drive themselves to appointments.

Q It has been over a month since I had my procedure. Is it too late to begin MLD?

A: No. The healing process after these types of procedure is several months. If it has been over a month since your procedure you can still get the smoothing benefits of MLD. If it has been over 6 months since your procedure and you are still feeling lumps and hardness you> should contact your doctor to make sure you have not developed fibrosis or a seroma.

Q: Do I need a prescription for MLD?

A: No. Although many doctors recommend MLD, it is also perfectly fine to self-refer.
